Nile Liner Slot Overview
Don’t say that SlotsAdviser isn’t original. Here we look at a slot, Nile Liner by Merkur, that isn’t really even a slot! Don’t worry, if you’re an online video slots player you’ll soon be finding your way around this machine, and maybe that original touch is what you’re looking for in a slot.
Instead of reels, for this trip to Ancient Egypt – a perennial favourite with designers of all sorts of games – we get a diagrammatic cross-section through a pyramid as our playing stage. We told you this was a different sort of game.
You still have pay lines though, 64 of them, that link up as a sort of network inside the ancient structure. Instead of looking for sets of matching symbols, in Nile Liner slot what you need to see to win is a network of linked pipes running from the outside world to the Egyptian mummy who’s buried in the pyramid.
Digging into the past
There are a lot of slot-like features to this game – though it’s also got something of the instant win/scratchcard simulation feel to it.
You bet from 0.1 coin up and there’s a maximum win of 32,000 coins, that you’ll need to hit multipliers and extra features to score. It’s rated as between low and medium volatility so should be decent value for session playing.
They call the linking system DynaLines, and as far as we can tell it’s unique. The pipes run down the pyramid, dropping in on giant building blocks. If they connect up then you’ve got a prize. If you see picture symbols on the blocks they’ll multiply your win.
An ancient culture
While there are extras to this game, they’re not presented in the usual way, as an offspring or special feature of main play. This makes the game feel a bit disjointed.
With just pipes as the standard symbols, the picture symbols here carry extra weight, adding a multiplier to your win. An ancient ankh doubles the stake; the falcon triples it, you’ll win four times stake for a scarab, five times for a jackal, and 10 times with the female pharaoh.
The look and feel of the Nile Liner slot game aren’t very up to date. The soundtrack is straight out of the original arcade or casino games, so if you like retro-feel games that’s a plus for you. The graphics are very simple by modern standards, with even the pictures pretty low quality. The bonus game in which you can gamble your wins in an all-or-nothing card turn could be bolted on from another machine and bears no relation to the Egyptian theme.
This makes it sound like we’re picking on this game. Don’t get carried away with that idea. Yes, it’s kind of simple and unsophisticated. But it also delivers something that all developers are looking for – novelty! There’s no point in pretending that Nile Liner can match a NetEnts game for sound and vision, but low volatility games that pay out little and often – with the backstop of a great big top prize – are few and far between these days, so if you fancy a change then get on board this river cruise.
